Center for Vaccine Research (CVR) is housing a world-leading vaccine research and clinical program directed against some of the major global infectious diseases (Tuberculosis and Chlamydia) and cancer. The center focuses on research and development of next-generation vaccines and diagnostic tools. We can efficiently move products from research into clinical trials. Currently, CVR’s activities in clinical trials are increasing within both Tuberculosis and Chlamydia vaccines, as well as novel approaches in cancer immunotherapy using novel adjuvant systems. We collaborate closely with a large number of institutions and are externally funded by e.g. the European Commission and National Institutes of Health.
